Bristol Palin last week injected herself into the gay marriage debate by dissing President Obama for citing his young daughters’ support for his shift on the matter. Now Palin says she received death threats for her remarks, and appears to be pinning the blame on Hollywood:
[Palin shared] screenshots of some the comments written on her site, including ones that say “kill yourself,” “may death be upon you,” and “You all, including your son, deserve a slow, painful and miserable death.”
However, the 21-year-old isn’t backing down and argued the death threats only serve to undermine her critics who are attacking her.
“Around Hollywood, there’s lots of concern and great initiatives to try to encourage more kindness in this world,” she wrote. “Then why do I get so many messages telling me I should die?”
Palin claims in the post she is victim of “bullying.”
“Here’s a newsflash, guys. Your hate and bullying won’t work,” she wrote. “People see through it, and they don’t like to be pushed around. You think it’s completely obvious that you’re right, but this younger generation is more pro-life than their parents, and voters just keep defending traditional marriage.”
As Irish Central points out, Palin’s chattiness on marriage, and the former Dancing With The Stars contestant’s claims of threats, come mere weeks before the premiere of her latest reality show about her life as a single mother.
It’s called Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp. Because, you know, her kid’s name is “Tripp.” Word play!
